2.5 stars - I wanted to like this one, I really tried, but in the end I just didn‘t. The plot was unbelievable and the main character‘s actions were even more so. Half way through the book I just wanted it to end and when it did I didn‘t feel any more satisfied. Thanks to GetRedPr #partner and the publisher for gifting me this free copy. Unfortunately this just wasn‘t my cup of tea. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/3058155984

Bette Oh my gosh I totally agree. I wanted to like it but it just didn't deliver, it was so preposterous. This is the kind of book that makes me sad cuz I could have been reading something good. 😟 2d

I have a dilemma. I'm about 150 pages into this 400 page book, and I am just dreading picking it up. I have been reading it for several weeks now. Normally I could finish a book this size in 2 or 3 days. If it was a library book I'd send it back unfinished. But I bought it. I just HATE spending money on books and then giving up. Ugh. What would YOU do?

Martyn_J_Pass Give up!!! Life is too short and you have it a good try. Yank off the bandaid and move on lol 3mo
xicanti I‘d also bail. Bad books just aren‘t worth it, even when there‘s money involved. If you feel really uncomfortable with putting it aside, though, you could read a bunch of other people‘s reviews to see if the issues you‘e got with it might clear up further in. 3mo
rabbitprincess Stick a post-it in as a bookmark and put it back on the shelf, in case you want to return to it someday. But don't continue trying to read it now if it's not working for you. 3mo

Slajaunie I bailed on this one. I was at about the same point. 3mo
tracey38 I agree. Life is too short to continue reading a book you aren't enjoying. 3mo
Traci1 @Martyn_J_Pass @xicanti @rabbitprincess @Slajaunie @tracey38 Ok. Thanks for all the input. I have decided to set it on the shelf for now. I doubt I'll pick it back up again except to maybe put it in the donate box. Thank you all for making me feel better about that decision. I always beat myself up over quitting a book. 3mo

A chance romantic encounter with a stanger during a layover at an airport leads, bored with life Joshua, on a wild ride. He's looking for the mysterious woman who captured his interest and may be in danger. Characters were great. Storyline was fun. Kept me turning pages. I expected 🌋 at the end but didnt really get 🌋. But it was kind of refreshing and not as twisted as most of today's thrillers are trying to be. I give it 🧳🧳🧳🧳

This was a suspenseful book and a fun and fast read. The first half was really excellent but the book kind of lagged in the second half. This would be a terrific vacation book.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Where'd she go? He wants to find her!

Joshua practically lives in airports because of all the mandatory traveling for work. He hates flying so he pops Valium along with a drink before each flight. In an airport bar at a layover, he meets a woman. She's mysterious, wears a hat and sunglasses covering her face. They hit it off, then she walks away. #netgalley

I decided to sign up for the #24in48Readathon this weekend. I've got lots going on so I likely won't get even half the time done. But that's ok. This is my tentative paperback stack - the middle two are in progress. I also hope to finish the audio I have going on and maybe start another. Are you participating?

PurpleyPumpkin Good for you for signing up! I like to participate, even if I know I'm not going to reach 24 hours. The readathon always helps me to get more reading done. 👍🏽 5mo
Hoopiefoot Yay! It‘s always such a fun weekend! 5mo
DebinHawaii Excellent! I have not done the last two but I am signed up for this round. It's very fun! 📚📚🤗📚 5mo

My first David Bell book and I liked it a lot. Got a little annoyed at all the mini cliffhangers at the end of chapters so you have to wait a chapter or two to get back to where he left you hanging but overall the story and the characters were good.

An airport, a chance meeting, an unforgettable, secretive woman, a woman who is actually missing, tells lies, and doesn‘t care who she involves or hurts.

LAYOVER kept me in suspense, kept my blood pressure up, and had me shaking my head at the stupidity of Joshua.

Mr. Bell has written another tense thriller with a very manipulative, not nice main character.

Intrigued? 5/5

FULL REVIEW/GIVEAWAY JULY 11.

An airport, a chance meeting, an unforgettable, secretive woman, a woman who is actually missing, tells lies, and doesn‘t care who she involves or hurts.

LAYOVER kept me in suspense, kept my blood pressure up, and had me shaking my head at the stupidity of Joshua. Why go to these lengths and ruin your life? Maybe he didn‘t think he was ruining his life?

Are you intrigued?

k.reads.5 Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I really enjoyed his book Somebody I Used to Know. 6mo

I struggle a bit with the rating of this book. Do I rate it based on my opinion or on what I think most people will think of it? Do you see the male protagonist as a hopeless romantic or as a man with strong stalker tendencies? I guess to be an honest reviewer I have to go on my opinion – and I see him as the latter. I can‘t say I really liked either pathetic Joshua or femme fatale Morgan. I know I would not want either as a friend.
